Inheritance Based on Same Name

Question

Are there any jewish traditions or laws that stipulate that a child who is named after a deceased relative has rights to or is obligated to accept property from that relative’s estate? My mother in-law insists that it is jewish tradition that my 13 month old son should accept an antique sterling silver coffee/tea service set because he is named after the person who owned it at one time. Please reply and let us know if any such tradition really exists. Thank you for your time. Sarah and David Corekin
